DUO IN AY2003-04 an institution where there is an exchange agreement with NTU/NUS/SMU on tuition fee waiver.

  • Due to an overwhelming response to DUO-Singapore, there is a need to give out more awards.

  • Since one semester is equivalent to about 4 months of study, based on DUO principle of awarding 1000 Euros per month for student exchange, the award was thus reduced to 4000 Euros.

  • 27 DUO pairs were created for AY2003/04.

  • Based on the student population in each university, NTU is given 10 pairs, NUS 12 pairs and SMU 5 pairs.

  • More than 300 applications were received.
